Nursing-Driven Innovation
Improving Lives

Nurses stand at the eye of the storm that is our current health-care crisis. It is a unique vantage, demanding an intimacy not only with the difficulties—and rewards—of hands-on patient care, but with the challenges presented to patients and their caregivers by economic uncertainty and irresolute public policy. 

In response, nurses are leading innovative efforts to improve care in hospitals, homes, clinics and communities—wherever patients are in need.

The Rita & Alex Hillman Foundation cultivates nurse leaders, supports nursing research and innovations, and disseminates new models of care—all critical to transforming our health-care system into one that is more patient-centered, accessible, equitable, and affordable; one that delivers the high-quality care patients need and deserve.
